Pic: Celtic to wear special 'Tipperary Water' shirts in Champions League today

With alcohol advertising banned in Kazakhstan, Celtic will be wearing a one-off shirt for tonight's match against Shakhter Karagandy.

There is no let up to the football now the season has kicked off and today sees the first games in the final Champions League qualifying round.

That means a long trip to Kazakhstan for Celtic where they will play Shakhter Karagandy. The game did throw up a small dilemma for the Bhoys as Kazakhstan doesn’t allow alcohol advertising, meaning their new Magners logo-branded shirt can’t be used.

So C & C, the company behind Magners, are using the game to advertise another of their brands, Tipperary Irish Mineral Water. It means that tonight's shirt will be a real one-off and as it features an Irish name on the front, will be highly prized if any ever come onto the market.

This is the image that Celtic have put up on their site of the jersey. Whether the real thing looks like this remains to be seen but with the game kicking off at 4pm, we'll soon know.
